Add a metronome to the reviews?
It seems that the camera reviews focus on static picture samples. It would be really nice if future DP Review reviews added a way for us to see how the low level light capture worked.
I take a lot of indoor and low light pictures and if some of the shots used a metronome (the old fashion one with the moving arm) we could judge how well a camera handles motion at different light levels.
The reason for a metronome is that it can be set to a constant speed and is reproducible. Of course shutter speed should be reported since that's going to be a big component on the sharpness (lack of blur) of the moving metronome arm.
just a thought as I try to figure out what my next pocket camera will be.
